The author of a recent Medium post is so close to right, it’s scary. Gary says the best thing you can do is to cut your meeting length in half.

And that is a phenomenal step. One that needs to happen. But one that needs to happen in conjunction with an even more monumental shift.

Change the start time of meetings to something “weird”.

Don’t start on the hour or half hour. Don’t even start on the quarter hour.

Start at 10 past or 10 til, and go for 15, 30, or 45 minutes – with a hard cut off. Just like college classes. Oh – and just like class days when all you had was a test, as soon as your part of the meeting is over, leave. You may have to wait to leave until the end. But once your piece is done, just like when you finished your test, walk out and get on with your day.

next bglug meeting: topic ‘raspberry pi’; speaker jordan keyes; 1900 (7p) 20 september @collexion hackerspace

After several months, the Bluegrass Linux User Group (see also G+ page) is resuming regular meetings in conjunction With Collexion – a hackerspace in Lexington KY.

Our first (next) topic is “The Raspberry Pi“, presented by Jordan Keyes (creator of twil.tv (also on youtube: http://youtube.com/twildottv)), at 1845 (6:45p) at Collexion. We’ll plan to “start” at 1900 (7p).

Collexion is located 109 E. Loudon Ave in Lexington.

We are looking forward to a good time being had by all.

Please bring a small donation for dinner (planning to order-in pizza) – any leftover cash will be left as a “thank you” to the kind folks at Collexion for letting us use their space.

Also to note: the new regular meeting day will be the third Thursday of each month.
